The Physiotherapy Department at

London Bridge Hospital, working

closely with a variety of surgeons and

physicians, is a team of physiotherapists

highly specialised in musculoskeletal

and sports injuries, neurology and

cardiorespiratory conditions.

The multi-disciplinary team within the

Department has a close relationship

with all of the hospital’s Consultants,

providing a uniquely integrated

approach to patient care and ensuring

seamless cross-referral pathways where

required.

The Inpatient and Outpatient therapists

are fully integrated, therefore giving

patients who attend the hospital in

both guises a feel of familiarity and

consistency.

A full comprehensive initial assessment

is always undertaken with a wide range

of treatments available. Whether the

patient needs treatment of an acute

injury, video analysis of their gait or

cycling technique, sports specific

rehabilitation or management of

long-term pain, our physiotherapists

have the skills and facilities to

accommodate them.

We are also developing a Cognitive

Behavioural Therapy service to further

enhance our provision for chronic lower

back pain patients.

Physiotherapy at London Bridge

Hospital is recognised by major

insurance companies, therefore allowing

ease of access for patients in arranging

their funding. However, we advise you

to check with your insurers before

undergoing treatment. Competitive self

pay prices are also available.

The Department is constantly growing

and developing new services and

enquires are always welcome.

Our physiotherapists are also available

to give talks, education evenings or any

CPD requirements that GPs especially

may find useful in any of the areas above.
